A 15-year-old girl has been sexually assaulted after getting off a bus in a Wellington suburb.

The girl was assaulted on Sunday evening at 7.50pm as she walked down Mirimar's Maunder Pl and Otaki St by a man wearing black clothing.

Police said she got off a Wellington city bus at the intersection of Park Rd and Mirimar Ave Mirimar Wellington.

She left the bus carrying backpack and a shopping bag when she noticed a thin male in black clothing, including a top with a hood across the road near the shops.

As she walked down Miramar Avenue a second man wearing white clothing walked past her.

The teenaged girl then entered a walkway that runs between Mander Place and Otaki Street and was seriously assaulted by the first man wearing black.

Police said the second man was considered to be a witness in this matter and may provide information about the girl and the other man dressed in black clothing.

Other passengers on the bus may also recall seeing the man wearing black, and Police encouraged anyone with information to contact Detective Tim McIntosh at Wellington Central Police Station on 04 381 2000.

Alternatively, information could be provided anonymously through the organisation Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.
